The Prime Minister has promised that a £2 million report setting out the detailed plans for the Third Crossing will be completed by March 2016, so that a funding proposal can be submitted in time for the Budget.
This report will include the location and design of the bridge, as well as surveys and an assessment of the economic benefits that a Third Crossing will bring to Lowestoft. The crossing should be located in the centre of Lake Lothing.
The Secretary of State for Transport took a boat trip on Lake Lothing when he was in Lowestoft to open the final phase of the Northern Spine Road.
Peter Aldous will now chair the Steering Group for Third Crossing project.
